Pajamas Media drops ad biz

Right-of-center blogs that used Pajamas Media as their advertising service are back on their own. The L.A-based PJM is dropping its blog ads network and will focus on PJTV, its online video content. One of the biggest Pajamas Media bloggers, Michelle Malkin, is apparently hooking up with Blogads, the service I use. The post at MediaShift is more generally about the drop in advertising on political blogs since the election.

Also: MediaShift's Mark Glaser live-blogged a Berkeley conference on the future of investigative reporting that included, among others, New York Times editor Bill Keller and Voice of San Diego funder Buzz Woolley, who said: "Blogs aren't edited very well, I like the newspaper."
